Bundesliga: Bayern go top with win

Robert Lewandowski’s last-minute winner lifted Bayern Munich top of the Bundesliga with a 2-1 win at previous leaders Bayer Leverkusen.

Patrick Schick put the hosts ahead inside a quarter of an hour with a superb volley from a corner, but two errors from defender Jonathan Tah cost his side.

First he jumped into his goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky to give Lewandowski a tap-in moments before the break, and his heavy touch in the 94th minute then allowed the striker to fire in a last-minute winner.

Robert Lewandowski moved onto 17 Bundesliga goals in 12 games

RB Leipzig dropped off the pace with a surprise home stalemate against Cologne, despite registering 19 shots.

The hosts enjoyed 64 per cent of possession and gave up only one shot on target, but could not find a way through a defence which had conceded 21 goals in their previous 12 games this season.

Werder Bremen struck in the final minute through Eren Dinkci’s goal to give them a 1-0 win at Mainz and lift them up to 12th.

Schalke’s woes continued with a 1-0 home defeat to third-bottom Arminia Bielefeld leaving the hosts six points off their visitors.

Fabian Klos’ goal seven minutes after half-time was enough to give Arminia their third win of the season, and leave Schalke still looking for their first victory after 13 attempts.

Eintracht Frankfurt won 2-0 at Augsburg thanks to Raphael Framberger’s own goal and a late Stefan Ilsanker second.
